Language processing can hardly be discussed without a statement of the fundamentals on which the instrumentation rests. The models and their operationalisation express the linguist's starting-points, more or less conscious, when he faces the phenomenon of language. A commonly accepted position in linguistics is that language is a set of culturally transmitted conventions. The language describing these conventions is called a linguistic model when it forms some systematics. To linguists this...

The purpose of the discussion in this article is to give an evolutionary background to a method developed for the analysis of language seen as expression of intention and morality.

The cue component of this mechanism is the Agent, which controls the perspective of the text. It has developed as a...

An ecologically oriented theory of information synthesis is presented in this paper. A model for the analysis of intentionality and orientation as expressed in natural language is put forward. The thesis is that knowledge is the result of an active inquiring agent (knower). His cognition rests on the extraction and abstraction of invariants. It is a mark of mentality that the knower always conceives the meaning of object-event relationships. Some of the assumptions for this approach are to...
